Dublin

City

The vibrant capital of Ireland is a city brimming with history, culture, and natural beauty where we work with the best English schools in Dublin

Information

Dublin has 1.2 million inhabitants, a great city to visit and an even better city to learn English.

With 50% of its inhabitants under 25, it is a city overflowing with music, art, theatre, culture, and fashion!“Friendly and Fun” are the words most visitors use to describe Dublin, and our students always agree!

Learn English with one of the best English language schools in Dublin, the town of Joyce, Beckett, and Wilde, and make new friends on great nights out.

Dublin is Ireland’s business, sporting, literary, and cultural capital. It is a vibrant, modern, busy, cosmopolitan city with a special ingredient at its heart – its people.

Dubliners are warm, friendly, good at telling stories, and eager to hear your story.

Dublin, a UNESCO City of Literature, is home to many galleries, museums, concert venues, theatres, cinemas, parks and gardens.

In recent times, it has been regarded as the tech capital of Europe because many of the top tech companies’ European Headquarters (Google, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Airbnb) are located in Dublin. There is even an area called Silicon Docks.

The city centre of Dublin is quite small and easy to get around and is where the best and most popular English schools in Dublin are located.

We always recommend walking to get to know the city, but there are many other ways to get around. The mountains and the sea are all close to the centre of the town and can be easily and quickly reached by car or public transport.
